So I'm watching Gunsmoke. A man and son come in wanting a custom competition 1873. During negotiations the price for a new competition 1873 is $500-$2000. For $18,000, they will get a cnc stainless steel receiver, a custom action KIT. A short stock and special engraving. I have no doubt it will be a beautiful, well shooting rifle. Now they are selling an M&P .45 with a trigger job and custom paint for $1200. Are guns that expensive in Colorado?
